  1. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hey everyone, Just this last week I noticed a high pitched whine that would get higher pitched till you get to about 30-40mph. I thought maybe one of the wheel bearing was on its way out. Then 2 days ago driving along at 70 all of sudden I could hear grating sounds as well. This has stayed, the...
  2. BMW X Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of X Series
    Hi All, I am new to this forum but had a few BMW's and bought a 2010 E84 X1 auto for the wife a month ago. On a 300 mile trip to Cornwall last week it developed a slight "clunk" when crawling forward in traffic and also a slight shake at higher speed. No clunks at all when over 10 mph and...
  3. BMW X Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of X Series
    Started with the dreaded triad (ABS/Brakes/4X4) so I had the actuator gear changed. It cleared all lights apart from 4X4. Told to take it to BMW to run diagnostics and they said that it needed a new servo motor. Bought that, had it fitted with my usual mechanic and all the lights came back...

    Hello folks.....recently bought a low miles 08 635d. The usual garage stamps which are just stamps so I'm slowly going through the bits that need servicing. Is the crank shaft breather job a diy job and is it necessary to do at 45k miles?

    Hi all. I had a warning to top up the cooling system, two weeks ago, topping up took 2 liters, so looking down i could see the dreaded water trickle from the timing cover drain hole which meant the front seal had failed on the cooling transfer pipe. Throwing myself on the floor and wailing why...

    Hi folks, My local indy quotes that a repair on my 2004 E83 3.0i is not possible to swap the gear inside the transfer case actuator and that a whole unit will need to be replaced; is this true? Cheapest price I've seen on ebay £799. BMW themselves quotes £2,250 for the part alone!! I know some...

    As above and true to my words of many previous posts, I have finally ditched the run flats. Despite still having 4mm on each of the Dunlop Sport Maxx's currently on the car (I think I will eBay them as similar sets are going for serious money from what I've seen), I decided to treat myself and...

    Hi my e90 330i has had a rough idle on a cold start for a while now but it hasn’t caused any other problems, within 5 mins of driving its smooth idle no problem. At my last service the mechanic said there was nothing wrong with the injectors and it was likely a breather problem e.g crank case...

    I've googled it and there's plenty of info out there but I wonder if someone can get me on the right path. The passenger xenon light has been acting up intermittently for ages. I managed to get it back on with a few "reboot" sessions but the problem had disappeared for some time now, I then put...
